It also shoots silently, with a vibration free, fully electronic, completely silent anti-distortion shutter, with no noise from a mechanical mirror or shutter.

Plus the electronic viewfinder has no blackout when the shutter is released while shooting stills, providing a seamless live view of the subject at all times.

Sony also has added pro features including an Ethernet port for file transfer, dual SD card slots for split storage or backup, and extended (2X) battery life.

The Alpha 9 is relatively compact at 5 x 3 7/8 x 2 1/2 inches and 1 lb., 7.7 oz. It ships in May for about $4,500 US.

Sony also announced its furthest reaching E-mount lens, the Sony G Master FE 100-400mm super telephoto zoom lens.

The lens features a double motor system that allows rapid AF lens movement. It is lighter, smaller and more portable at 49.3 ounces. It will ship ship this July for about $2,500 US.
